31-year-old Zachery Baker was booked early Friday morning after officers observed him speeding down I-40, going 82 mph in a 55 mph zone. When the police attempted to pull Mr. Baker over, he yielded and nearly struck the cushion barrier. While speaking with Baker, officers could smell alcohol coming from his vehicle and asked him if he had anything to drink, to which he replied that he didn’t. His speech was slurred, his eyes were bloodshot, and he staggered while walking. He finally admitted he had one 12oz Corona an hour before the stop. Mr. Baker then performed poorly on sobriety tests and was transported to Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital for a blood sample before booking.
